Wolfie continued

The wolf head is finally starting to take shape - and we have several big ideas for the form. First up: floral garland balls inspired by this stone building ornament.

We have been casting logs by the hundreds (well, maybe not hundreds - but we made at least 50 in the last week) and making more log lights and log hooks.

Side note - the log hooks are going fast - only 5 left in stock. Once they are sold out that is it...

big bowls

Our newest studio porcelain - super large bowls. (think 10 apples for size) These came out so nice... all they need is a little china paint.
slipcast porcelain, 60.00 each.

in progress

To make a plaster mold off of a three-d print is a little tricky. You cannot pour right onto the rapid prototype because of the porous nature of the material. So, we have covered the Pug Head in tin foil - to make a plaster shell to pour rubber into. I kind of like the tin foil head.

The squirrel makes an excellent chair caddy. Also, could be door knob warmer...

late night stacking

It seems like we always come up with the best ideas while we are cleaning up - the last 20 minutes of the day. Mike was showing off his new vase and talking about finishing up the squirrel. So he stuck the squirrel in the vase, and I grabbed a platter to sit on top. Perfect for a serving dish! Also, the squirrel makes a good chair caddy...

Make, Scan, Mill, Print, Adjust, Repeat

Mike and Steven have an article in the newest Ceramics Monthly about their work with three-d scanning, printing, and CNC milling. The article explains how the rat was created and modeled, and also how Steven scanned and then milled a perfect wooden pillow. Check it out if you get a chance.
